I think that the NHL should push their draft picks to stay all 4 years in college (which would require a change in their draft protection rules).

I believe that college hockey players should enter their freshman year much earlier, and the NHL pushing their draftees to stay 4 years would give entering freshman incentives to start earlier. If all college teams had younger freshman, the level of play would match.

And all the good players will go to the CHL. No thanks.

“The level of play would match” What does that mean? The level of play overall would go down.

I would say at least get rid of the third year of juniors post HS graduation first. And eventually hopefully the second year, or shift the second year to be the third year rule (limited players).
